Susan Kingman is a theatre-maker and creative facilitator, with a strong background in inclusive practice and communication skills training. Her creative work often stems from real-life stories and perspectives not often heard, centring on first-person testimonials and interviews.
Susan began creating her own work in 2012, with an early version of her first play, ‘I’ll Be There, Now’, which went on to an Arts Council Wales-funded tour of South Wales. Since then she has developed several other projects in collaboration with other Wales-based artists and companies, and has been awarded further Arts Council Wales grants.
Susan set up, and co-ordinates, the first hub in Wales of the UK-wide Mothers Who Make artist & creative network (recently featured on Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour).
Susan is based in Cardiff, and has worked as a cARTrefu artist since 2017.
